    Hello, this is my first posted thread
    Like the title says, I'm just wondering
    what browsers do other users, well...use!
    I'm using Safari but I'm recently
    reacquainting myself with Opera,
    a browser I used constantly
    on Windows...

    Yep i'm using that. The amount of times ive typed a google search into the address bar it was getting annoying.

    I like the animations in the new Safari, but the memory leak problem is too big. I switched to chrome for most of my browsing and love it! My only problem with Chrome is that it isn't color-managed, and I'm a professional photographer who does a fair amount of web-based image critique. I use Safari in those situations. Come on Google, incorporate color management into your browser already!

    Same here, but I was hoping Google doing an update for a 64bit version ;) and of course no scroll bar plz.

    SeaMonkey, a reminder of Netscape Navigator.

    I mainly use Chrome. Its performance is really terrific with the prefetching and instant searching. Safari and Firefox are my fallback browers for compatibility reasons. And in the worse case scenario, I can use IE 9 through parallels.

    Wow thank you!

    Also, anyway to bring back the two finger swiping to go back to the previous page on chrome?

    Although omnibus solves one of the biggest gripes I had with using safari, for now using Safari since it's the only one I can swipe a finger to go back.

    I was using chrome, but it has gotten SO buggy it's become unusable! Back to Safari and really loving the new version!

    Ever since I installed Omnibar, I've moved to Safari and haven't looked back

    I must be the only Firefox user here...

    Firefox is taking a hammering at the moment. Its really gone downhill recently and just can't keep up with the others for some reason.

    Its a shame as it used to be my "go to" browser.
  21. macrumors member

    Safari 5.1
  22. macrumors regular



    So for the record, I'm using the latest Safari plus Omnibar.

    There's no reason a browser needs to be 64 bit.

    I'm using Chrome Canary. I was using Safari 5.1 but it's a poorly coded mess that devours over 2 gigs of my ram in under 2 hours of moderate use.
  24. macrumors 6502a

    Download Chrome Canary. With it you can use 2 of 3 finger swipes.

    Diehard Firefox user - I use Safari once in awhile, and I can't stand the look and feel of chrome (although I will admit it‘s pretty quick)

    There are just too many great extensions in FF for me to want to switch to something else.

    When I first came over to Macs, I tried Camino and really liked it, but again, it didn't have the wealth of plugins available. Maybe I'll check it out again later today...
